Brighton 2-1 Oldham

Brighton 2-1 Oldham

Brighton   2 - 1   Oldham

Francisco Sandaza grabbed a dramatic late winner to send Brighton top of the league and condemn Oldham to defeat.

The Latics had gone ahead after half an hour when Lewis Alessandra finished off a lightning break by Chris Taylor.

Seagulls front man Ashley Barnes wasted four good chances before eventually equalising with a powerful header.

The game looked to be heading for a draw but Sandaza bundled home Inigo Calderon's hopeful header in the sixth minute of added time.


Brighton manager Gus Poyet told BBC Sussex:
"It's a different kind of pressure but today we showed belief to go and win the game. It was one of the most difficult games we've played so far. When you score in the last minute the flavour of the victory is even better.

"Today the ball dropped and we were good enough to score. It's a fantastic three points for us. What we're going to take from this game is belief for the team. We need to keep building from this."

Oldham manager Paul Dickov tells BBC Radio Manchester:
"We're getting a bit more consistent with our performances and getting better all the time but we just have to make sure that the things that we don't do so good, we work at.

"I think Brighton will be up there at the end of the season and they're probably the best team we've played.

"But I think we matched them today for long periods and I think we were worth at least a point, we're disappoint but lots of positives to take from it."
